I see the same doctor every time I come to the hospital, Dr Wynn. He's very friendly to me, but I'm shy so sometimes I don't want to talk. He tells me just what he's going to do and what's happening to me.
I used to be really worried about coming to hospital. I used to be frightened but I'm not now.
I am 9 years old.
We normally have to wait quite a long time, sometimes it's an hour. I come every 4 months, my appointments are in the mornings most of the time.
We used to go to Pendlebury Hospital and there was a room where I could play and draw while I was waiting. There was a play worker who played with me and helped me draw while I waited to see the doctor. I really liked that because it didn't feel like I was waiting for liong.
Pendlebury was closer to my house.
